There is a lot of great information for parents to be on pregnancy and childbirth on Debra Betts website www.acupuncture.rhizome.net.nz and a very useful video (and illustrations) of acupressure points that can be used in labour. Debra Betts is a New Zealand acupuncturist and author of ‘The Essential Guide to Acupuncture in Pregnancy and Childbirth’.

Baby Ultrasound Art – The ten months that a baby grows inside its mother is a very special time. Like each baby’s personality and fingerprints, every pregnancy, fetus and baby are entirely unique… And one that can be beautifully captured as a piece of ultrasound art to visually revisit time and time again. My paintings were designed evoke this sentiment and bestow a memory of this gestational stage of life. Each piece aims to capture this magic, your baby’s personality and in-utero experience. – www.quaintbabyart.com
